ATTALA COUNTY, MS (WLBT) - An Attala County businesswoman had been missing for three days Sunday.  Sheriff William Lee said he does suspect foul play, but there are no persons of interest at this time.

Vicky Ellington was last seen in Kosciusko Thursday. She is the former owner of a pharmacy and owns Attala Fitness and Tanning.  Her vehicle was found by friends at the WalMart parking lot in Louisville Friday afternoon. 

Sheriff Lee told us she was planning to meet someone in Louisville, but left her purse behind.  She has a grandson who was in her care.  He is now being cared for by someone else.  Family and friends held a vigil Saturday night and prayed she is found soon.

"Miss Vicky Ellington was a beloved pharmacist that served her patients, the doctors, and everybody involved in her work very very well.  She was a hard working dear Christian lady," said Ellington's friend Larry Routt.

If you have any information, contact the Attala County Sheriff's Department at (662) 289-5556.
